Ambiguous messages promoted by Amazon with her new product

Videos of suspected bandits are being released by Amazon to promote its new product.

It is a doorphone camera, which is accompanied by an application that allows its users and owners to easily publish their own videos.

As a result, Amazon indirectly cultivates a climate of fear and suspicion for the people around us, turning buyers into witnesses of violent crimes.

According to a representative of the product, such tactics will not be used forever. The full statement was as follows:

"His alarms Ring help maintain security by encouraging the community to work directly with local police. Notifications are created using published content from the Neighbors application linked to the police systems. We obtain the explicit consent of the Ring customer before sending the content.Euse of geographic references to limit exposure to relevant communities. Community members can then directly share or publish tips to help local police contact suspicious persons or investigate crimes. "

Amazon

The questions raised are many, if one takes into account, how similar publications have even existed in the Facebook. Sometimes, such posts are not from users but from the company itself.

Is it morally ambiguous, like a giant like her Amazon use such promotional methods? Under the guise of warning about potentially dangerous people, it seems at least unfair to target people, even until they have proven their innocence. What impact on the users themselves, on the users, on the people who take them into account, and on our society in general?

However, it is worth noting that some of these publications contributed to the work of the police. In fact, a police spokesman said that although Amazon has never been asked to publish these videos, however, the help they received with this move was important.

Ways of promoting the product that has been presented are finally considered advertising or social function? Maybe both? It is worthwhile questioning how many and what rights are being violated.
